    Not shabby though. I thought most slots said "Huge Win" at 20X these days. Fuckers.

    Was that from @Astribling's TR? :D

    I'm sorry to hear that the meet with @luck.ofthe.draw and friend didn't occur this trip. Those whippersnappers would've kept you on your toes...

    Vegas on, Team @ardee!

    This seems like wonderful fun...but did Mr & Mrs Ardee smoke any Trelegy?

    Granted, smoking Trelegy can be harmful if you have severe allergies to milk proteins. It can cause fungal infections in the throat, mouth and eyelids as well as cause pneumonia.

    Smoking Trelegy can also cause urinary retention, elevated blood pressure readings and / or catastrophic tremors & nervous system malfunction.

    So the board demands an answer...did you smoke any?

    Not unless someone slipped us an unapproved FDA experimental liquid version in our bourbon, @tdhoier.
    We’re waiting for the generic version. Much cheaper with less side effects.

    Packing up and getting ready to roll home, kids.
    We’ll follow up with a summary of the consequences of our actions
    later this afternoon.

    No chickens were fried in the making of this trip report but several
    brain cells may have been. :cool:

    Hopping the “consequences of your actions” don’t involve this upon checkout. ;)

    I saw one in the background of a recentish Brian Christopher video where he said he was at Cosmo. I cleaned up on one at Casino Royale in April and it became one of my favorites!

    You bet, @Retrobabble. We traded the Caddy for a microphone. :headbang:

    Got home about an hour ago. Having a little lunch, putting stuff away and cleaning up after the kitties.

    Hubs will be back in a bit with his overview and impressions of the short time we spent in Vegas.
    Sad we couldn't make it work to meet up with @luck.ofthe.draw this time. We'll make it work one day soon :wave:...and we always have :santa:
    Hoping you'll come back and follow us til the end, dear readers.
    Otherwise, we'll just have to believe the Penguin when she says:

    Random hubster thoughts:

    The secret to enjoying brioche buns is to flip them over before you eat the burger. :cool:

    Granite Kitty and Sabertooth in the 6th.

    After playing them all, as much as I hate to admit it, I like Casino Royale the most out of the James Bond themed slots. The bonuses are a lot more fun. Thunderball gets 2nd place.

    Buffalo Diamond isn't as good as Buffalo Grand. Just sayin'. I don't like Game of Thrones Mark 2 either.

    The main problem with the Boulevard Tower is that it is one hellacious slog to the valet when you are ready to leave. Whereas the Chelsea elevators dump you out 10 feet from the doors. But I have to admit the view is a killer.

    Cosmo secret: The rectangular blue throw pillow on the bedroom chair makes a great bed pillow. This is necessary because the standard pillows SUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!

    OTOH the casino soundtrack at Cosmo is the best in Vegas. Bar none. Their room service is on the ball as well. Great alternative to trying to break through the crowds of disco pants and haircuts.

    All in all the mission was a success. I'm still puzzled about why the drive to Vegas takes 3 hours, but it takes 3.5 hours to get home. Very strange. :hmmm:

    Glad you all enjoyed this little jaunt. We just had to get away for a couple of days and we grabbed the chance when it arose. Stay tuned for Ardee's Summer Of Madness and Wonder (multiple trip reports).*

    Sometimes a bear just gotta rock out with his cock out!


    Kick ass TR, you two! Sorry I couldn’t follow the live feed. But damnit, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a dozen times...no live TRs during finals week! :nono:

    Love all the great booze you had. I’m particularly intrigued by the spicy margarita at Holstein’s...any good? Also, how was the room service strawberry shortcake? Such a great spring dessert, hope it was tasty. :feedme:

    Thanks again for yet another great report! Now go give those kitties some love.

    Also, because no one else bothered to reference the funniest part of the film...

    It was called the Zupita and had jalapeno infused syrup, camarena tequila, pineapple juice (different for me) and fresh lime juice.
    Good but not as good as the spicy drink called the Citrus Prickle :wink2: at Delmonico. Not a margarita but that one was killer.
    Ingredients from the cocktail menu:
    "Ketel One Citroen Vodka is integrated with our House-made Jalapeño Simple Syrup, Fresh Orange Juice, Cranberry Juice and a splash of Lemon."
    Spicy and (and just a bit) sweet. :cheers: A great cocktail before a meal.

    The strawberry shortcake at Cosmo was made with layers of sponge cake so it was nice and light.
    Enjoying it on the terrace while taking in the view was a wonderful thing. :love:
    Glad you liked the report, @thecarve. Thanks for reading.

    So sorry we couldn’t meet up guys! But yes, we always have summer or the holidays! Based on my trip, you can bet I’m coming to visit at least once during summer. :D

    So glad you had a blast! Looks like the slots were amazing, and I love all the food and drink!

    I also agree with the husband - can’t beat Cosmo’s soundtrack. Love their tunes. :)
